Japan ski hotels

Skiing in Japan means deep snow, magnificent resorts and a season lasting for up to 6 months. An up-and-coming skiing and snowboarding destination, Japan is rapidly becoming very well-known for its wide variety of terrain and sheer number of ski resorts all over the country.

Snowfall in Japan is reliable and heavy (some resorts receive an average of up to 14 meters of snow every year) and allows for a main season running from December to March (in some resorts to May). Japan has very good infrastructure and most of the many, many resorts are easily accessible. The average temperature on the slopes is a few degrees below zero, so pack warmly.  

Not all resorts offer English spoken lessons for skiing and snowboarding-the Niseko ski resort is your safest choice when looking for lessons in English. After a day on the slopes, enjoy the Japanese version of après-ski and relax in one of the many onsen baths (onsen is the Japanese word for "hot spring"). Visit Japan and experience its hospitality, beautiful scenery and wonderfully distinctive cuisine. Japan’s history and rich culture will ensure you leave this country with plenty of new experiences.
